WEBINAR: Upgrade now from IBM Cognos BI to Cognos Analytics 11

WEBINAR: Upgrade now from IBM Cognos BI to Cognos Analytics 11

Date: 31 July 2018 @ 11am Register now

Speaker: Mark Cracknell, Director, HAYNE Solutions

IBM Cognos BI is now out of support and has been replaced by IBM Cognos Analytics 11; meaning that IBM will no longer be delivering bug fixes or software updates for IBM Cognos BI.  Issues can arise when systems outside of IBM’s control (such as Windows) have updates, causing problems for IBM Cognos BI.

If you are still using IBM Cognos BI for business critical reporting, now’s the time to upgrade to IBM Cognos Analytics 11.  HAYNE Solutions will fully support you from end-to-end through the migration, training and ongoing support.

Advantages of upgrading

IBM have invested a lot in developing the IBM Cognos Analytics 11 solution to be more self-service and functionally rich.  See for yourself on our webinar the major enhancements in Cognos V11:

1. NEW INTUITIVE INTERFACE
A complete overhaul of the user interface offers an easy-to-use analytics environment that allows both “data discovery” and “traditional BI” all in one place.

2. STORY TELLING & VISUALISATION ENHANCEMENTS
Create rich ‘data stories’ with infographics, more chart types and layouts which help create flow to your reports, thus encouraging understanding and easy digestion of important data.

3. INTENT-DRIVEN MODELLING
The new web based modelling capability uses smart technology based on IBM Watson technology allowing you to use natural language to search for answers.

4. DATA DISCOVERY
Enhanced data modules and dash boarding which delivers ease-of-use and data discovery capabilities for your end-users.

5. DASHBOARD CREATION
The dashboarding capability has been totally overhauled and provides the ability to simply drag and drop data to suit your reporting and analysis needs.

6. MOBILE ACCESS & AUTHORING
The mobile app for Cognos IB has always been best in class.  The difference now is that you can author reports on your mobile device, allowing you to view and author on the go.

7. UPLOAD DATA FILES
New, faster, more scalable way to upload local data files.  Store data from delimited text and Excel files on the file system rather than in-memory or in an RDBMS.

8. OUT-THE-BOX GEOSPATIAL MAPPING
Powerful geospatial mapping is ready to go, out of the box.  These capabilities will enable the design and publishing of highly visual maps alongside existing Cognos dashboards and reports.

9. ALERTS & SUBSCRIPTIONS
Subscribe to, create alerts for and access your reports in ‘My Subscriptions’.

The webinar is appropriate for all stakeholders including CFO’s, Finance Directors and Financial Controllers.
